The competencies defined in this initiative are aligned with many of the ABET student outcomes. Each academic program is working to show how these competencies will be leveraged to support and demonstrate the success of each student.
The learning outcomes in our Engineering Leadership Minor are mapped to the ABET student outcomes. You can find the specific outcomes for the minor listed here.
Students: You can begin sharpening your non-technical skill set by pursuing an Engineering Leadership Minor , take a course in our leadership curriculum, and/or attending many of the co-curricular events that have been identified as programs to help you shape your understanding of the six competencies. Please note that we are still framing our current suite of co-curricular programs and developing new programs that will directly align with the six competencies identified in this initiative.
